Poetry

So much more than a literary art, it’s a language of aesthetics and emotion–not the aesthetics and emotion of language.

Nightfall Loans

Midnight silence forebodes a shadowy blue That distorts reality into fantasies of its own And within a night, the petal blacks bled through Like spots of supernatural undertones Sable eyes under moonlit night peeped anew To view a fabled valley to sadness-prone But before twilight coffers had chance to accrue…

Castle of Poets

In quiet keep, sat him in sleep The old poet lost in memories He chronicles the arbitreals Events recorded in mystery But in that castle fraught with hassles He mourned his work so suddenly He sat agape at the fate Of inconsistency in histories In fiery tone he shakes the…

Inkwell Memories

Flickers of rose bend to the breeze As sadly backed, she sat abed Ushered under heartfelt unease The vermilion fire consumed her dread Consciousness under-minded fled To and into such flames of glee Keys embedded in thoughts instead Felt so content with false guarantees But at no point did she…

Mossed Ballroom

Amongst our dimly lit soirée We reveled in sampled gloom Murky drays topple on the way Whilst we breathed such dreadéd fume A ball of crystal, we’d assume Saw the tragedy in gray Prepared the tools in the next room Had we known drays to sway But came the wagon…

November

Past the warm spring music And into fall cornet I stand so deathly still And wait for autumn’s threat As green bleeds from trees And flowers drain their rosette My gaze shifts to follow The verdure’s solemn set Fallen colors ascend slowly Due the frigid wind’s abet ‘Mindful of blooming…

May

Winds sing their mellow song New leaves splendor with fay Apple blossoms deem it true- There be no better day Petals drift in the cool breeze Light orchids tilt and pray Along the dainty daisy wall Birds find solace in play The sun shines like no other Flowers dance their…

Ambivalence (ABC Poem)

Ponderous sorrows blacken my day, while Quicksilver thoughts upset my mental ease Runaway emotions, I’d love betray So I’d lastly rest with sorrows appeased But drenched in such heartfelt agony Agony birthed from mindless love for thee Backed into corners with dust and gray, my Contrived happiness remains ever so…

The Candy Store

My local candy store never sold happiness Never wrapped nor bottled for the window dress And while children waltzed by in empty bliss An emptier window displayed quite-ly amiss I had not a privilege of store-bought commodity And thus yearned happiness in all my despondency For while it slowly trickled…

Council of the Dejected

I think it be best we all gather The minds of the wise, the hearts of the broken And form a council of dejected – Souls torn, emotions dead To comfort those new to such a wicked game I remember my pain, as old as it was But when I…

Winds Pass my Keep

Are you listening, calm breeze? Do hear my farewell I need you to pass on When I am too weak to tell Can you hear my faint whisper? Keep close, for it is your’s To you, I confide My great love from before My heart is left broken It cannot…

Rivers of Blood, My Little Boat

Rivers of blood, steering my little boat, Meandering aimlessly past the line. Peering ‘long, fretting not if it’ll float, Upon the waters of red, deep with malign. This be the journey of desired travel. Let it be spoken and agreed upon. World before, command you unravel, And present me the…

Midnight Journies

Under the veil of darkness Bade bye, I, to my homestead Started on that winding road Road I never saw to tread And of what hour slipped away Had I found the nerve and fled? Without the residing remains Of that farewell left unsaid I took and stole what I…

Plaintive Song

No sooner had the sky darkened sable, No sooner had the clouds rolled in, Did that familiar, yet unknown song Remind me where I’ve been. It was a wistful song, so soft and cold, As it wept out its broken heart. It bade me yearn what was never mine, Granted…

Crescendo

Winter winds delight in winter atmosphere To revel great pride in cold sung glee While I was left alone with frozen cheer Harvesting nectar thoughts from frozen trees But ice sings sadness much too sincere Woebegone versions of happy symphony Her soft angelic voice numbs my ear A sound three…

Birthday Poem!

She found such joy in sprucéd dress; He prevailed against all those before Pokemon masters, nothing less And she an icon evermore Sixteen years you’ve been adored As toddlers and all to-progress (And while babies, I do so abhor You couldn’t have been that bad, I guess) So my celebratory…

Woe

In quiet mourn, married I woe tonight And the clock that tarries sad hours long Hard rain constricts heart chambers tight And depresses breath short for song For when shall I see her future hence? In lost adore, to maintain such keep Aye, now drowned in her cold absence I…
